If you're of the mindset that a Macbook Pro can't have its hardware upgraded, you're in for a surprise - for a surprisingly reasonable sum, you can double your hard-drive space and your RAM, giving you a space and performance boost that you're probably going to enjoy, somewhat! So, why should you consider upgrading, and what should you look for?Read More

The Other World Computing company started selling the RAM modules for Mac mini models released five months ago. Previously there was written in the official specifications of Apple that new Mac mini models were to operate with memory modules of the overall maximum volume of 8 Gb.
However, already today you may buy modules of 16 Gb from Other World Computing, herewith, the company guarantees their normal performance.
Other World Computing offers four RAM modules sets as following:
Two 1333 MHz DDR3 modules of 2 Gb at the price of 38$;
Two 1333 MHz DDR3 modules of 4 Gb at 80$;
One 1333 MHz DDR3 module of 4 Gb + one 1333 MHz DDR3 module of 8 Gb at 750$;
Two 1333 MHz DDR3 modules of 8 Gb at 1400$.
The name of the memory is HMC (Hybrid Memory Cube).
These RAM chips are to be released at the conference of Intel designers in September, 2012.
It is joint working of Intel and Micron, IBM worked on the TSV technology. All the details and nuances about this work IBM is going to tell at the IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting conference on December, 5.
Components of HMC are to be manufactured at the IBM progressive division located in New York. During producing, there is used the 32 nanometers HKMG technology.Read More
Those users of laptops who decided to add memory modules by themselves should know, that it’s not enough to say in the shop “give me memory for my laptop” and then having returned home, to pull the lid away and install the memory into any slot of the same size. Do not torture yourself with questions like "what laptop memory do I need".
In up-to-date laptops there is used DDR SDRAM (Double Data Rate SDRAM). It supports transmission of not one data bursts, but two per one clock cycle in order to increase bandwidth of memory. To promote this type of memory, manufacturers started specifying memory speed as frequency of transmitting one data burst (i.e the effective one), not as real frequency.Read More
Today there are 4 types of laptop memory, such as: SO DIMM DDR, SO DIMM DDR2, SO DIMM DDR3 and Micro DIMM.
Types listed above don’t include RAM for desktops (personal computers) that some sellers successfully sell as if it’s for laptops and some users successfully buy it. Moreover, some models of notebooks are equipped with additional memory slots that are located under a keyboard, not under a lid that is easy to open.
So that, upgrading process is getting more difficult, in addition, you may break something essential. Your notebook will not start to run with the module that is fixed askew, as well with modules that are working at high frequency of bus or that have memory more than acceptable.Read More
So, it's just the time to improve performance of your “mobile friend”.
The right choice is to start with adding RAM. Moreover, the only way to improve performance in laptops equipped with no removable CPU (central processing units) is upgrading memory on laptop and installing faster hard disk.

Then, first of all let’s find the memory compartment, in other words, the place where RAM located.Read More
Computers frequently fail to demonstrate stable high performance because of some problems with RAM. It may be failure to install RAM.
As well there may be mistakes while installing RAM or directly while its operating. In this article we show you how to check laptop memory.
Being already installed, RAM may appear on the blue screen or reload suddenly. This is caused by mistakes done while writing or reading in RAM.
When OS is working it uses RAM as buffer for storing the programs and data code.Read More
